Sew another shirt

Still nothing is knitted, and sew another shirt.

Since it is not my first time to sew a shirt, it is my first time to sew this kind of collar. It takes me quite an effort to put it in a balance way. The outcome seems not bad. Practice more will get a satisfied resuslt.

I am lazy to get a match button, you see, they are just very simple and ordinary shirt buttons (same as my last shirt that posted). What is my next FO? A shirt is also coming, a new fabric has brought but no idea of shirt pattern has come to my mind.

Been tagged of 7 random facts

I have been tagged by Andrea and Bonny Belle of 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and need to read your blog.

The facts:

1. I love chocolate. But whenever I eat it, there will have pimples, really annoyance.
2. I love knitting. I can take a week annual leave and knit day and night at home. Even don't go out to enjoy the sun.
3. I don't have TV at home. I know it is hardly to believe at HK. I better save my time to read the fiction and knit.
4. I like to stand still near the window to have a look at the street scene.
5. When traveling, I like to plan my own traveling schedule, eg. booking the transportation and hotel, the place we visit, the route..., and clip all the travel information on the newspaper.
6. I love to eat any kind of food except the food's ingredient has fat, spicy and wine.
7. I like to drink chinese tea and japan green tea.

Nothing is knitted, but something is sewn

I haven't written the blog for about 2 weeks, for nothing is knitted to post. Where is my knitting mood ? I don't know and hope that it will come back later. Therefore, I go to buy some fabrics and make shirts in this summer time. Sometimes it is very difficult to choose the fabric printing pattern, too many to choose and don't know how to choose. OK, use one rule : fall in love with the first sight.

Sincerely speaking, I am not good at sewing and this is the only one shirt pattern that I have. I like this kind of collar that make feel comfortable when wearing. I hardly draft this pattern from an very aged, aged, aged.... Japanese sewing book. I want to buy a new one at Japanese bookstore but cannot find any, it may because seldom people will make dress and shirt, so the bookstore owner won't keep the stock. If I have any chance to go to Japan again, I should search and buy more sewing pattern books instead of the knitting books. We don't find any difficult to buy Japanese knitting books at HK.

After sewing this shirt, it really inspirits me to sew more shirts and will try to sew a trousers. Another new challenge to me.
